As a not-for-profit co-op, UDWI REMC is owned by its members. Every month you pay your bill for electric service and the cooperative pays the expenses of providing that service. Anything left over after operating costs, loan payments, and other expenses is called a margin. Part of being a cooperative means that UDWI does not earn profits; instead, any revenues above the cost of doing business during a year are considered margins.
For decades, these margins were invested back into the cooperative to pay for infrastructure such as line repairs, system upgrades or equipment. But, when a co-op can determine that it is in a financially sound position after making these required investments, the margins are “retired” and are disbursed to the members in the form of capital credits.
In 2012, the UDWI board of directors made the decision to “retire the margins” and to begin dispersing capital credits. Since then, approximately 88,400 capital credit checks and 14,600 bill credits have been distributed to members, totaling over $4.4 million.
The list of unclaimed capital credits available today is for 1966-1973.
